It's beginning to look. . .
a lot like Christmas. At least at our home it is. Instead of shopping on "Black Friday," we had a partial day of school, had lots of fun setting up the boys' tree and made our first gingerbread house.
I love seeing the excitement on their little faces and listen to their chatter as they design the tree. They now have a "big tree" instead of the little one which was getting way too small for their ornaments. In January, I found a $180. brand new, 7 1/2', pre-lit tree at Goodwill for $30, and I snatched it up for us. This season, the boys found themselves the proud owners of our old 6' tree. "Ethan's branch" is so telling of a child's motto ~ "More is better!" :-)

Connor has a 6 foot tree in his room that we got on sale last year. He has the same ornament philosophy as Ethan. They need to be close together so they don't get lonely, or something... 75% of them are on the side facing his bed, but oh well!
